Concerning the Spiritual in Art


Published October 13, 2013


LibriVox recording of Concerning the Spiritual in Art by Wassily Kandinsky. (Translated by Michael Sadler.)
Read in English by Expatriate
Published in 1911, Kandinsky's book compares the spiritual life of humanity to a pyramid -- the artist has a mission to lead others to the pinnacle with his work. The point of the pyramid is those few, great artists. It is a spiritual pyramid, advancing and ascending slowly even if it sometimes appears immobile. During decadent periods, the soul sinks to the bottom of the pyramid; humanity searches only for external success, ignoring spiritual forces. (Summary from Wikipedia)
